US copyright law does not apply internationally.  The Berne Convention
states some basics, but even signatories to the Convention have, apparently,
taken some liberties with some parts of it, so we can't even go with what
the convention states as it's terms.

So no, as it turns out, US copyright law's "fair use" provision doesn't
answer our questions.
